Basics of knitted design ( knitting and crochet)

In this workshop you will learn the basics needed to design your knitted garments step by step: from finding the correct measurements and how to use them, measuring the swatch and using it to find the stitch count and yarn count to adapting the design to fit different sizes.

Sandra will also explain the advantages and disadvantages of different garment constructions and how to use Excel or Google Sheets during the design process to calculate the amount of wool needed for different sizes.

During the class, you will be able to work from a sample that you must knit beforehand.

Required materials:

Calculator, ruler, notebook and pencil, access to Excel or similar software.

Required techniques:

No previous knowledge of design is required. But it is recommended to have made at least one garment before attending this workshop.

Homework:

  • Make a sample in the chosen stitch of at least 15 x 15 cm.
  • Have thought about the type of garment you want to design.

IMPORTANT!

How do the online workshops and talks work?

Barcelona Knits 2021 has a programme of workshops and online talks on stocking stitch and crochet given by renowned national and international designers and influencers in the world of wool.

From the end of September, you will be able to consult the online workshop programme and the panel of workshop leaders and book your place.

We will use Zoom as a platform for the virtual classes. You will only need a computer or a mobile device with a camera and microphone. We recommend that you check the quality of your connection, the timetable, the language of the workshop, the level and the previous knowledge you need.

Once the workshop has started, you will no longer be able to access it. For this reason, it is best to connect 10 minutes before and make sure that the link is working properly.

How can I attend one or more workshops?
